      We were talking about opensource projects that continue to live not dead in the water commercial ports.

        First-person shooters are totally overrated and get imo too much of media focus.

            Depends on what one is looking for.

            There are reasons why FPS games often are in the media focus. They're technologically advanced, offer something for the eye and aggregate vivid communities of players (easy to get started, doesn't take hours to play a match). It's usually the communities making the buzz and keeping media attention alive.

            That absolutely doesn't mean other genres wouldn't deserve more media coverage. For me it's not a matter of FPS getting too much of it (those games have many players, so of course they'll get covered) but more like "other games get too little it". Having a gameplay of high "nutritious value" (e.g. Widelands or FreeCiv, randomly picked wonderful games) for itself sadly isn't enough to receive good coverage.

              sadly other game types need more than a FPS, they need a FPS base for starters and more content over that
              i hope that now, having mature bases like ioquake/Warsow/Nexuiz/OpenArena, more games are produced on top of that, maybe RPGs ( themed like DeusEx/SystemShock would look good )
